EAST OF THE WALL: New Track Released, American Tour On The Rise

Exploratory New Jersey-born prog-metal peddlers EAST OF THE WALL are preparing to drop their third full-length slab of methodologically unique output, The Apologist, this Autumn. Longtime followers of this act, and the numerous related current or previous acts leading up to this recording — including but definitely not limited to The Postman Syndrome, Day Without Dawn and El Drugstore — have been awaiting this release for some time.

In preparation of the forthcoming tech-fusion upheaval of The Apologist, longtime EAST OF THE WALL supporters MetalSucks have graciously hosted the public’s first listen to the band’s latest output, in the form of the eleventh track from the album, “Whiskey Sipper” [although both MetalSucks and Earsplit know we do more than “sip” whiskey when the band play in around here].

Tune in to survey the new EOTW terrain here.

The Apologist was recorded earlier this year by Andrew Schneider at Translator Audio in Brooklyn (Cave In, Pelican, Keelhaul, Unsane, Rosetta), and boasts 47 minutes of EAST OF THE WALL‘s aggressive and angular metallic assault at its most cohesive to date. This week the band have let loose the final artwork and track listing for the release’s multiple incarnations, with a confirmed street date of October 25th, both for the CD/digital release via Translation Loss, and for the double 12″ vinyl release licensed to Antithetic Records, available in three different color variations. The CD is available for preorder here and the LP here.

EAST OF THE WALL will beat the country senseless with their engaging live prowess for over a month in support of the album right in time for its official street date in late October. In longstanding tradition, the band are booking this venture themselves, and in many cases they are unable to announce several of the shows and are also still looking to lock down a few shows along the route. Anybody interested in booking the outfit on the designated shows please contact EOTW directly at: band[@]eastofthewall.com.
